Tooth Fairy Pillow and Lye Soap

I have been encouraging my sister in-law, Mary to make some things to put on Etsy. She recently took a trip to KY to see the in-laws and Judy taught her how to make lye soap. I told her to wrap some up and I would put it on my Etsy store to see if we can sell any of it.



She also made an adorable tooth fairy pillow for her daughter Emily. I asked her to make one for Joshua. He will be losing a tooth soon. (I will post a picture of his in a later post). She is in the process of making a few to put on Etsy. They are just so cute. Her mother made some for her and her sister when they were little.It is completely hand sewn. Even the pocket.


Isn’t it adorable?

You can see the listing in my Etsy store.

Oh and on a sewing note, I made one block for a swap. Woo Hoo!!!

Tyler’s School Picture

We missed the school picures in the fall. For some reason they take pictures in the spring too. So we made sure to order some this time. He doesn’t like the picture. It looks good. It is hard to believe he is 14 and will be wanting to drive next year. Woe is me.


Almost One and Teething

Andrew will be one on Saturday.  It is so hard to believe. This year has just flown by. I don’t want him to grow up. He is so adorable just the way he is.

dsc06069copyI don’t have any sewing news or pictures to share so I thought I would share a couple of pictures I just took of Andrew. Here he is happy as can be playing away.


Opps I fell on my bum. It is amazing how quickly they go from a smile to a frown. Those pesky one year molars are driving him crazy. You can see one there on the left. It started coming through in the last two days. The bottom right one started coming through today. He has a place where it is all swollen and looks painful. Poor little guy.

Easter Pictures 2009

The kids had a blast yesterday. Emily came over and the kids hunted egs in the front yard. It was so much fun. It looked like the Easter Bunny exploded in our front yard. Andrew watched the older kids. Next year her will be hunting for sure.
